Worship, Preschool, Pie Sale Results, and More!


Good morning, everyone! Thank you for being part of our church’s mission of “…making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Here is some of what’s going on at Byers Avenue UMC…

This Sunday, July 17th at our 10:45 a.m. Worship Service, we’ll continue our current message series called “Divine Attributes: God Is…”. This week specifically, we’ll be looking at how God is “Ever-Present”. God is present in all places at all times. Most importantly, he is present in our lives and even lives within our hearts. In addition to Worship, Children’s Church will run the entire service for those who would like to participate.

Byers is partnering with Joplin Schools and the USDA to provide free meals to children this summer. Our Family Life Center is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00-12:30 p.m. as we serve these meals. On Tuesday of this week, we served seven children, and on Thursday we served 12. Thank you to Carol Smith, Linda Stegner, Dotty Hansen, and Marcia Long for providing hospitality and supervision. Everyone, please continue to share the news. If you know of children who might benefit, please pass along this information.

Little Light Preschool continues to meet during the summer months and is currently enrolling for the 2022-2023 school year. Please check out our website at https://www.byersavenuelittlelightpreschool

Our Pie Sale totals are in! In just a few days’ time, our team sold 967 pies and raised $8,579.01. This money will go to assist our various ministry partners and fund additional outreach opportunities. Thank you to everyone who made pies, served pies, ate pies, or helped out in any other way!

That’s all for now. Keep loving God and one another! And, as always, stay on mission! Have a blessed day!

Pastor Chuck
